Somaliland opposition leader blames rising inflation on DP World

Somaliland opposition leader Abdirahman Mohamed Abdullahi, also known as Irro,has stated reasons why the self-declared republic is grappling with runaway inflation and increased cost of basic commodities.

Speaking to television reporters at his home in Hargeisa, Irro blamed the high inflation rate in Somaliland on United Arab Emirates-based ports operator DP World which signed a deal with the separatist state to develop an economic zone in Berbera.

“DP World and khat are to blame. DP World uses the Somaliland shilling to procure services during the day and dollars at nigh,” he said.

The state-owned UAE company does have not a bank account in Somaliland, he alleged.

Irro recently called on Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi to step down for “hiding the truth of the UAE deals over Berbera port from the public”.

Irro, of the opposition Waddani party, ran for the presidency in November’s election but lost to Mr Abdi of the ruling Kulmiye party.

Somaliland declared independence from the rest of Somalia after the overthrow of president Siad Barre in 1991 but is yet to get international recognition.

In 2016, DP World said it would invest more than $400m to develop the Berbera port in an agreement that included Ethiopia.

But the government in Mogadishu rejected the agreement, saying it violated Somalia’s sovereignty.

  15. If you ever tried Phallomax, please share your thoughts below. Im about to test it out. Have read about it some promising reviews. Just wondering on how many of extra centimeters would this product add to my little Woody down there haha 😀

  16. Very good info. Btw have you heard about this product: http://bit.ly/2N5npwG Seems like it’s one of those products you don’t normally talk about. I’ve come across it on yesterday and thought I’d give it a try just to see how good it is. Found some video reviews on Dailymotion and they look legit (I mean not scripted). Not all products out there have so many positive reviews. Have a look on it, maybe this can finally solve our problems (or at least yours).

  17. Very good blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

  18. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  19. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.
